I think that this album is often overshadowed by Stars which is another excellent album. Simply Red isn't all about Mick Hucknall, yes he is a great vocalist and frontman but this band is made up of some great musicians too. This album mixes many styles incorporating jazz, rock, mood music to name but a few. 'Picture Book' is a personal favourite with almost prog like leanings.

Some good tracks (1, 2 and 6), some filler and one of the best songs ever written.

They would be a forgettable pop soul band but for Hucknall's singing and he was never better than he was here. This is a consistent collection with the standout "Holding Back the Years," which makes my list of best songs ever written.
